Southern Tradition: Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival

May 30th, 2011

Now that Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, the summer is in full swing here in Richmond. A Southern tradition of great brewed beer, bourbon at its finest and slow seasoned to perfection BBQ-  honestly, what more could you ask for?

June 4th at the Richmond Raceway Complex all of these Southern staples and more will be available for your tasting! The Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival is a festival that travels across the East Coast bringing the South to parts of Maryland and New York. Your general admission ticket will have you in hog heaven tasting sixty different beers, forty different bourbons, and every different kind of BBQ out there. You will receive a souvenir glass as you enter the event that will allow you to stroll from tent to tent sipping on the best of the best, as you satisfy your hunger with BBQ.

Seminars are available in the Tasting Theater, which will give you the secrets of the Master Distillers, Brew Masters, and Grilling Kings or Queens. After the seminars, you will certainly be able to recreate the Festival in your own backyard this summer. There will be vendors on site so you can pick up exactly what you’re going to need to be THE Grilling Master in your neighborhood this summer. Tickets are available in advance and we do suggest grabbing them before because last year this was a sold out event!

We hope you check out what the South has to offer you!
